I love the optimism that whoever came up with this has. These ships struggle to operate in warm water for months never mind years, it'll be in bits well before four years is up.

Support was pretty damn good by the time I left one of the SANDOWNs out there about 18 months ago. However, given all that has happened in Bahrain, I'm not sure how much of the infrastructure is remaining.

Sorry NG, speak to some of the clankies on these boats; they are in a sorry state after all the time out there and the lads are doing very well to keep them going.
No argument there. I always found the FSUs brilliant (as well as Ships' Staffs). However, the MCMVs are where they are for the best of reasons.
